Eighty percent of Queensland is gripped by a devastating drought that has already lasted more than a few years. But there has been some rain in Brisbane, and with it comes back garden activity such as these two locusts busy doing the dirty! Add a few hundred thousand more of these guys and who knows what damage would be done.

Anyway, it was a good opportunity to play with the macro lens and Helicon Focus, a new stacking software I recently invested in. It’s an amazing tool that allows you to stack frames, each with a different focus point on top of each other. The result; or what should be the result is a perfectly focused image. But it’s not so easy. Any movement from the subject, like the feelers moving and you end up with blurring. So, camera set up and organization has to be spot on. It’s going to require a lot more practice until the full potential of the software is realized. I think I might just spend some time down in the bush looking for interesting subjects.

Anyway, the shots are not perfect, but overall I’m pleased with the results of this first serious attempt to get something from the investment.
